So what is this going to be? A little bit of everything I think. Maybe that's it. What I'm thinking. What I'm believing. I hope what I'm knowing. And why would anyone care what I think I know? There's no reason in the world that you should. But then why are you here? Cuz you have to be somewhere I suppose. I've never been here before. I may not be back. I might get too busy to care; time is short. That's fine. Nobody can deal with it all at once. There is a lot to deal with.

I try not to take myself too seriously, but I know I have far too much. So I'm trying to learn how to laugh again, as I had forgotted for a while there. Also I'm relearning to enjoy life; you know, like when we were kids. The biggest challenge ahead is learning how to love God with all my heart, and soul, and mind, and strength. This one is not really that hard when you know the truth. But along with it comes learning to love others as I love myself, and that one is, as they say, "a horse of a whole different color." I think I need to learn to love myself a little more, but the problem may be that I know all these facts about me. Sometimes the facts are simply wrong or they are just stuck in the past. I'm trying to get my facts to line up with the truth. As someone once asked a great man, "what is truth?" If he had only known.

Praise God, It's Friday!

My destiny is just beyond my sight;

It bursts forth from the background as I speak.

It calls me from outside my vantage, thus

I must keep moving forward and reach it.

I dare not sit back and fold my arms, for

I now have to advance onward or die.

I hope you enjoy winter as much as your blog seems to suggest. I may be reading between the lines or perhaps you've mentioned it; I don't remember. But as you like hiking and you've talked about the woods behind you property (Wow, how cool would that be?!), I figure you must enjoy the outdoors winter and summer. After seeing the few pictures in the blog you featured the other day, I imagine winters are really beautiful in Portsmouth. I must admit I have not really enjoyed the last couple of winters, but that is going to change this year. This is going to be a good winter. How do I know? Because I'm making the decision. As per the post I am going forward and I will not remain in my past. (Where did that come from?) You must inspire me, Scott.

Thanks buddy,
